The sample of this research was 30 patients with psoriasis who were referred to Spadana Specialized Clinic of Surgery and Laser Diseases. They were available selected and they were randomly assigned control (n = 15) and experimental (n = 10) groups. The experimental group received a cognitive behavioral group training in 7 sessions of 100 minutes with a median time interval of 6 days. Subjects completed a questionnaire of 36 quality of life questionnaires before and after intervention. Data were analyzed using covariance analysis.
